After the ‘Zatte’, this is the oldest beer from Brouwerij ‘t IJ. Natte is classed as a ‘dubbel’, a Belgian category of smooth, dark beers. Because we partly use dark malt, Natte has a reddish-brown colour and a smooth, roasted flavour with earthy tones of brown sugar, nuts and plums. Completed with slightly bitter hops, this is a nicely balanced beer and one of the brewery’s classics.

Skinnyviking (8652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2007
Bottle. Hich creamy and long lasting off-white head. Hazy dark orange body. Sweet and fruity barley malt aroma with some caramel as well. Astonishingly hoppy flavor of fruits with a good deal of carbonation and a dry and long bitter aftertaste. Alcohol percentage seems just right.

guzzler67 (1654) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 17, 2007
Cloudy, deep amber appearance with an average size beige head and nice lacing. Yeasty, sweet malt aroma with notes of molassas, toffee and ripe fruit. Moderately sweet, malty taste; dark fruit and a light nuttiness were evident. Medium-bodied, modestly carbonated mouthfeel. Lingering, slightly metallic finish.

JK (5664) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Shared by Retro42. A sweet beer. Light yeast, and sweet Belgian malt and Belgian yeast. They nailed the style on this one, but I usually expect IJ to do something a little different. This is an ordinary dubbel of high quality.

Draught at the t’IJ brewpub. Hazy amber to brown color with very creamy head. Malty, tart and toffeish aroma. Sweet, malty, toffeish, acidic and worty flavor with hints of licorice, vanilla and juniper. Quite viscous, sahti-like palate.

Retro42 (18) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2007
Light aroma of yeast and barley. Head fell away quick to almost nothing. Flavor wasn’t bad, mostly sweet with a touch of malts. Palate was kind of weak with a watery feel, nothing notable there.

Sampled with Minnesota gang, shared by retro42. Pours a semi-hazy coppery brown brew with a thin film on top. Aroma of toasted yeast and wheat, with a touch of raisins. Taste is a little tart and peppery with a yeast aftertaste.
